The world is desperate for leaders. There are plenty of people willing to accept the perks and privileges of leadership, but are unwilling to accept the accompanying personal risk and responsibility. Ethical leadership is an enlightened philosophy that gives leadership sparkle. Ethical leadership embodies how a leader presents themselves to others.

This course identifies the five principles of ethical leadership and contrasts those principles against five behaviors of immoral and amoral leaders using real life examples. You will learn how to hone your own leadership style to embolden an ethical posture which will strengthen your ability to lead others and achieve more. You will also learn to identify the signs where your leadership style may be undermining your follower’s levels of motivation and commitment.

Learning Objectives

  • Discover and discuss the role ethics plays in leadership.
  • Identify principles that define ethical leadership from other forms of leadership.
  • Identify amoral and immoral behaviors that undermine leadership.

Best examples - enjoyed the question on which leader is most likely to be an immoral leader...with the clear answer being Donald Trump.
